These bear paw blocks are designed by A Quilting Life. |
• To create the half-square triangles, note the Easy Corner Triangles as noted by the pin symbol (as shown below in the red circle)on the block you will be making.
Therefore instead of cutting on the diagonal, you will sew on the diagonal. When you do sew might wish to sew ever so slightly to the right - one maybe two threads to the right - gives you just enough more fabric when folding over and pressing to make that block or angle square. After you've sewn your line, you then have the option of cutting away the excess fabric in the back or not. Sometimes you may not want to cut the fabric because it helps to keep the piece square, or to size.
• Again there are many arrangements of these blocks you can create even with just 2 pieces of fabrics. The instructions show you two ways, but there are more. Have the bear paw prints all face the same direction as show, or turn them all inwards - or have each of the point towards their respective corners. You may find if you select your own fabrics, how different the blocks can appear.
Our kit uses the following fabrics:
